Much of this morning was spent decommissioning and dismantling the gull-watching hide at Pitsford Reservoir, a sad day indeed! A few birds noted in the vicinity of the dam there included an adult Yellow-legged Gull, a Ruff, a Little Egret and a Grey Wagtail.
Early afternoon was spent on the reserve section of the reservoir. The Great White Egret was in the Walgrave Bay at 2pm but was subsequently fishing in the Scaldwell Bay in front of the Willow Hide. The two Ruddy Shelduck were again on the bund in front of the New James Fisher Hide and other birds included another adult Yellow-legged Gull and a Hobby.
